WILMINGTON — Novant Health and the Wilmington Chapter of Links, Incorporate will host Links in Pink next week, where locals can access mammogram screenings and health resources in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The event will take place on Oct. 21 at the MLK Center, 401 S. Eighth St. in Wilmington from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this time, Links members will educate the community about the importance of breast awareness, self-examinations and mammograms. Novant Health will provide mammograms and share resources for surgical and prosthesis bras.

Breast cancer survivors will also be celebrated, including Mildred Bethea, the event’s featured speaker.
